Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis: I ‘Failed So Miserably At Marriage’
At least she can see the irony of her acting as the defender of traditional marriage.
Davis, who has been divorced three times, reflected on her role in the same-sex marriage debate in an interview with the Associated Press Tuesday. “How ironic that God would use a person like me, who failed so miserably at marriage in the world, to defend it now,” Davis said. “The Lord picks the unlikely source to convey the message.”
Davis called the same-sex marriage debate “a very emotional and a very real situation to all people” and told the AP she thought the Supreme Court decision “awakened” Christians across the Country.
The clerk said she felt simply sharing her beliefs wasn’t “going to make anybody believe anything,” adding, “no one would ever have remembered a county clerk that just said, ‘Even though I don’t agree with it, it’s OK. I’ll do it.’”
“If I could be remembered for one thing, it’s that I was not afraid to not compromise myself,” Davis added.
